unknown fry in tank
can any one ID these redish color fry. the rest are guppy. the only female fish i had in my tank were guppy who died soon after birth. i found these fry inside one of my plant. they look completely different to me from the guppy.
i have attached couple of pics.
Hmm....they look like they could be Platy....
well i did have a preg' platy. unfortunately that platy is still the same. i can still see the gravid point.
In a lot of livebearers the gravid point does not go away fully.
but my platy is still fat like its abt to give birth. but i've had these fry for abt two weeks. is it possible the plants i bought a while back had eggs inside? does that happen?
Yup, it can happen. Or if you got the plant from a tank with platys, a couple newborn fry could have hitched a ride home with you. What was in the tank with the plant you bought?
Your Platy could just be pregnant again. Livebearers can store sperm for a rather long time.
